Reading a Console Test App
- Open a new console app in Visual Studio. Put a break point at the closing brace for Main and generate a Son of Strike dump.
- If you open this dump with the visualiser you should see 94 objects on the heap created by Visual Studio to manage the code and run the program.
- Now if you initialize a new reference type object, such as a string, and generate a new dump, it will appear in the graph.
Structs (e.g. int type variables) won't show up in the graph as they are not stored on the heap.
- Adding the string to a new array:
- If you initialise more complex objects, rotate the graph to get a clear view of it.
